Literature Review: Final Assignment
Overview
A critical skill at the doctoral level is the ability to conduct scholarly research guided by clearly articulated research questions that address a specific issue or problem. For this literature review, your research will be guided by the following three Research Questions:
1. How do individual and group decision processes aid or impede business decision making?
2. What are the newest directions and developments in the process of strategy development and execution?
3. How can my academic discipline (DBA Program Cognate), as a function within the organization, impact the process of business strategy development and execution?
The first two questions are explored from a broad business perspective, while the third question gives you the opportunity to change your frame of reference to your specific cognate in the DBA Program.
The purpose of this research project is for you to create a scholarly piece of doctoral level research and writing which conforms to current APA format.
What are we looking for in this literature review?
A literature review discusses published information in a particular subject area and sometimes information in a particular subject area within a certain time period. This literature review will be more than just a simple summary of information from various sources as it will include an organizational pattern that combines both a summary and synthesis of information. Please keep in mind that a summary is a re‐encapsulation of the important information found in the source, while a synthesis is a re‐organization and combining of that information to present a more complete picture. Finally, the literature review will evaluate the sources and advise the reader of the most pertinent or relevant points.
Are there differences between plagiarism, paraphrasing, and quoting?
Paraphrasing is when you take a source or someone else’s idea and say it in your own words or even combine the ideas of several authors as well as your own. When you paraphrase, you will still give the author credit through the use of an in‐text citation connected to the idea as well as a reference at the end of the paper.
On the other hand, a direct quote from a source has quotation marks around the quote or if 40 words or more, it must be set in block quotation format. You can refer to the APA guide for more information on this.
Plagiarism is when the writer simply copies the words directly from the source without giving credit with an in‐text citation and a reference. Plagiarism is not permitted.
At the doctoral level, you should be relying almost exclusively on the use of paraphrasing to allow synthesis of the original author’s views with your own. A direct quotation should only be used in this literature review (or most other documents you will produce) when paraphrasing would change the author’s intended meaning. In other words, you should only use a quotation when it is the only way to convey what the author intended to convey.
Specific Instructions:
• Follow the outline generated in the Literature Review: Outline Assignment to include any feedback from your instructor.
• Minimum of 30 pages not including introduction and conclusion
• No less than 10 pages addressing each research question
• Minimum of 30 sources including the course textbook
• No less than 10 sources for each research question
• 1 inch margins, Double Spaced, Maximum of 12 point font
• APA current edition. Format to include Cover Page, Abstract, Table of Contents, and Reference Section.
Formatting
1. Please ensure that each section has headers and that the directions are followed to a tee.
2. Avoid general statement (you must support your views with a source, you cannot in an academic paper use terms such as most people, everyone, etc. without a source that agrees with the statement)
3. Citations must include pg. numbers.
4. Direct quotes require page numbers. When you are using quotation marks it is an indication it is a direct quote thereby, in need of a page number. Anytime you use statistics, dates, years, percentages, it is a direct quote thus needing a page number.
5. Do not use “first-person” in an academic paper
6. The city and state locations of publishers are no longer required; only include those details “for works that are associated with a specific location, such as conference
7. presentations” (p. 297, section 9.31).
8. If a source was written by more than two authors, list only the first author, followed by “et al.” for the first in-text citation and all subsequent citations (APA Manual, 7th edition, p. 266).
9. Make sure you provide supporting statements to reveal why you made your recommendations.
10. The abstract is the only paragraph that does not get indented (APA Manual, 7th edition, p. 38). Include keywords.
